Flexible working is a great tool in attracting and retaining key talent and can led to more gender diverse teams, creating a much stronger culture and productive workforce.

Flexible working is a great tool in attracting and retaining key talent. A focus on flexible working in recruitment and internal culture can led to more gender diverse teams, creating a much stronger culture and productive workforce. Extending flexibility to everyone in the organisation, including to your senior roles can offer great business outcomes.  

Speaker: Carolyne McCreath, People & Culture Business Partner, Scottish National Investment Bank, Nikki Slowey, Co-founder & Director Flexibility Works

At this event, we will look at what businesses are doing to increase diversity in their leadership empowering more women taking leadership roles in industries that are traditionally male dominated. Women in leadership can influence talent attraction and retention.

 

Something to reflect on:

– Over the past nine years, women have remained underrepresented across the corporate pipeline (McKinsey, October 2023).

– Men receive 6.2 times more funding than women. On average, a female-founded business receives £763,000 in funding, while a male-owned organisations receive £4.7 million. Addressing this gap could add £250 billion to the UK economy (Finder, February 2024).

 

Whether you’re an employer, professional, or advocate, this event promises valuable insights.
